Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have Mandrake 9. To use a support group I go to, I need Java plug in for browser. I downloaded this in mozilla and followed the instructions from the java/sun site (I thought). I am a newbie so maybe not doing it correctly.
The instructions say:
Run the installation script and agree to the licence.
Launch the installation script by using the following commands from the directory in which it is located:
chmod a+x j2re-1_4_1_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin
The script displays a binary licence agreement etc etc
I follow above instructions but don't get the agreement.
It was downloaded to
so I assume I get into the home directory, in my case firstname.lastname@example.org
I guess I am doing this incorrectly somehow. Can someone help please.
I used the command from previous message - just changing the bit about the mozilla plugin location. It seemed to work as I looked in help in mozilla and java is listed and enabled. When I went to the group it took forever to load the applet and I actually gave up waiting. Will have another go.
I have also downloaded a flashplayer, I guess I follow a similar process to install that?
